The Synthetic Data Vault (SDV) is a Python library designed to be your one-stop shop for creating tabular synthetic data. The SDV uses a variety of machine learning algorithms to learn patterns from your real data and emulate them in synthetic data.


:brain: Create synthetic data using machine learning. The SDV offers multiple models, ranging from classical statistical methods (GaussianCopula) to deep learning methods (CTGAN). Generate data for single tables, multiple connected tables or sequential tables.

:bar_chart: Evaluate and visualize data. Compare the synthetic data to the real data against a variety of measures. Diagnose problems and generate a quality report to get more insights.

:arrows_counterclockwise: Preprocess, anonymize and define constraints. Control data processing to improve the quality of synthetic data, choose from different types of anonymization and define business rules in the form of logical constraints.

conda install -c pytorch -c conda-forge sdv

Getting Started

Load a demo dataset to get started. This dataset is a single table describing guests staying at a fictional hotel.

from sdv.datasets.demo import download_demo

real_data, metadata = download_demo(

Single Table Metadata Example

The demo also includes metadata, a description of the dataset, including the data types in each column and the primary key (guest_email).

Synthesizing Data

Next, we can create an SDV synthesizer, an object that you can use to create synthetic data. It learns patterns from the real data and replicates them to generate synthetic data. Let's use the FAST_ML preset synthesizer, which is optimized for performance.

from sdv.lite import SingleTablePreset

synthesizer = SingleTablePreset(metadata, name='FAST_ML')

And now the synthesizer is ready to create synthetic data!

synthetic_data = synthesizer.sample(num_rows=500)

The synthetic data will have the following properties:

  • Sensitive columns are fully anonymized. The email, billing address and credit card number columns contain new data so you don't expose the real values.
  • Other columns follow statistical patterns. For example, the proportion of room types, the distribution of check in dates and the correlations between room rate and room type are preserved.
  • Keys and other relationships are intact. The primary key (guest email) is unique for each row. If you have multiple tables, the connection between a primary and foreign keys makes sense.

Evaluating Synthetic Data

The SDV library allows you to evaluate the synthetic data by comparing it to the real data. Get started by generating a quality report.

from sdv.evaluation.single_table import evaluate_quality

quality_report = evaluate_quality(
Creating report: 100%|██████████| 4/4 [00:00<00:00, 19.30it/s]
Overall Quality Score: 89.12%
Column Shapes: 90.27%
Column Pair Trends: 87.97%

This object computes an overall quality score on a scale of 0 to 100% (100 being the best) as well as detailed breakdowns. For more insights, you can also visualize the synthetic vs. real data.

from sdv.evaluation.single_table import get_column_plot

fig = get_column_plot(

Real vs. Synthetic Data

What's Next?

Using the SDV library, you can synthesize single table, multi table and sequential data. You can also customize the full synthetic data workflow, including preprocessing, anonymization and adding constraints.

Release Notes

1.2.0 - 2023-06-07

This release adds a parameter called verbose to the HMASynthesizer. Setting it to True will show progress bars during the fitting steps. Additionally, performance optimizations were made to the modeling and initialization of the HMASynthesizer.

Multiple changes were made to enhance constraints. The Range constraint was improved to be able to generate more accurate data when null values are provided. Constraints are also now validated against the data when running validate() on any synthesizer.

Finally, some warnings were resolved.

1.0.0 - 2023-03-28

This is a major release that introduces a new API to the SDV aimed at streamlining the process of synthetic data generation! To achieve this, this release includes the addition of several large features.


Some of the most notable additions are the new SingleTableMetadata and MultiTableMetadata classes. These classes enable a number of features that make it easier to synthesize your data correctly such as:

  • Automatic data detection - Calling metadata.detect_from_dataframe() or metadata.detect_from_csv() will populate the metadata autonomously with values it thinks represent the data.
  • Easy updating - Once an instance of the metadata is created, values can be easily updated using a number of methods defined in the API. For more info, view the docs.
  • Metadata validation - Calling metadata.validate() will return a report of any invalid definitions in the metadata specification.
  • Upgrading - Users with the previous metadata format can easily update to the new specification using the upgrade_metadata() method.
  • Saving and loading - The metadata itself can easily be saved to a json file and loaded back up later.

Class and Module Names

Another major change is the renaming of our core modeling classes and modules. The name changes are meant to highlight the difference between the underlying machine learning models, and the objects responsible for the end-to-end workflow of generating synthetic data. The main name changes are as follows:

  • tabular -> single_table
  • relational -> multi_table
  • timeseries -> sequential
  • BaseTabularModel -> BaseSingleTableSynthesizer
  • GaussianCopula -> GaussianCopulaSynthesizer
  • CTGAN -> CTGANSynthesizer
  • TVAE -> TVAESynthesizer
  • CopulaGan -> CopulaGANSynthesizer
  • PAR -> PARSynthesizer
  • HMA1 -> HMASynthesizer

In SDV 1.0, synthesizers are classes that take in metadata and handle data preprocessing, model training and model sampling. This is similar to the previous BaseTabularModel in SDV <1.0.

Synthetic Data Workflow

Synthesizers in SDV 1.0 define a clear workflow for generating synthetic data.

  1. Synthesizers are initialized with a metadata class.
  2. They can then be used to transform the data and apply constraints using the synthesizer.preprocess() method. This step also validates that the data matches the provided metadata to avoid errors in fitting or sampling.
  3. The processed data can then be fed into the underlying machine learning model using synthesizer.fit_processed_data(). (Alternatively, data can be preprocessed and fit to the model using
  4. Data can then be sampled using synthesizer.sample().

Each synthesizer class also provides a series of methods to help users customize the transformations their data goes through. Read more about that here.

Notice that the preprocessing and model fitting steps can now be separated. This can be helpful if preprocessing is time consuming or if the data has been processed externally.

Other Highly Requested Features

Another major addition is control over randomization. In SDV <1.0, users could set a seed to control the randomization for only some columns. In SDV 1.0, randomization is controlled for all columns. Every new call to sample generates new data, but the synthesizer's seed can be reset to the original state using synthesizer.reset_randomization(), enabling reproducibility.

SDV 1.0 adds accessibility and transparency into the transformers used for preprocessing and underlying machine learning models.

  • Using the synthesizer.get_transformers() method, you can access the transformers used to preprocess each column and view their properties. This can be useful for debugging and accessing privacy information like mappings used to mask data.
  • Distribution parameters learned by copula models can be accessed using the synthesizer.get_learned_distributions() method.

PII handling is improved by the following features:

  • Primary keys can be set to natural sdtypes (eg. SSN, email, name). Previously they could only be numerical or text.
  • The PseudoAnonymizedFaker can be used to provide consistent mapping to PII columns. As mentioned before, the mapping itself can be accessed by viewing the transformers for the column using synthesizer.get_transformers().
  • A bug causing PII columns to slow down modeling is patched.

Finally, the synthetic data can now be easily evaluated using the evaluate_quality() and run_diagnostic() methods. The data can be compared visually to the actual data using the get_column_plot() and get_column_pair_plot() methods. For more info on how to visualize or interpret the synthetic data evaluation, read the docs here.

0.17.0 - 2022-09-09

This release updates the code to use RDT version 1.2.0 and greater, so that those new features are now available in SDV. This changes the transformers that are available in SDV models to be those that are in RDT version 1.2.0. As a result, some arguments for initializing models have changed.

Additionally, this release fixes bugs related to loading models with custom constraints. It also fixes a bug that added NaNs to the index of sampled data when using sample_remaining_columns.

  • Update the RDT version to 1.0 - Issue #897 by @pvk-developer

0.16.0 - 2022-07-21

This release brings user friendly improvements and bug fixes on the SDV constraints, to help users generate their synthetic data easily.

Some predefined constraints have been renamed and redefined to be more user friendly & consistent. The custom constraint API has also been updated for usability. The SDV now automatically determines the best handling_strategy to use for each constraint, attempting transform by default and falling back to reject_sampling otherwise. The handling_strategy parameters are no longer included in the API.

Finally, this version of SDV also unifies the parameters for all sampling related methods for all models (including TabularPreset).

Changes to Constraints

  • GreatherThan constraint is now separated in two new constraints: Inequality, which is intended to be used between two columns, and ScalarInequality, which is intended to be used between a column and a scalar.

  • Between constraint is now separated in two new constraints: Range, which is intended to be used between three columns, and ScalarRange, which is intended to be used between a column and low and high scalar values.

  • FixedIncrements a new constraint that makes the data increment by a certain value.

  • New create_custom_constraint function available to create custom constraints.

Removed Constraints

  • Rounding Rounding is automatically being handled by the rdt.HyperTransformer.
  • ColumnFormula the create_custom_constraint takes place over this one and allows more advanced usage for the end users.

New Features

  • Improve error message for invalid constraints - Issue #801 by @fealho
  • Numerical Instability in Constrained GaussianCopula - Issue #806 by @fealho
  • Unify sampling params for reject sampling - Issue #809 by @amontanez24
  • Split GreaterThan constraint into Inequality and ScalarInequality - Issue #814 by @fealho

0.9.0 - 2021-03-31

This release brings new privacy metrics to the evaluate framework which help to determine if the real data could be obtained or deduced from the synthetic samples. Additionally, now there is a normalized score for the metrics, which stays between 0 and 1.

There are improvements that reduce the usage of memory ram when sampling new data. Also there is a new parameter to control the reject sampling crash, graceful_reject_sampling, which if set to True and if it's not possible to generate all the requested rows, it will just issue a warning and return whatever it was able to generate.

The Metadata object can now be visualized using different combinations of names and details, which can be set to True or False in order to display only the table names with details or without. There is also an improvement on the validation, which now will display all the errors found at the end of the validation instead of only the first one.

This version also exposes all the hyperparameters of the models CTGAN and TVAE to allow a more advanced usage. There is also a fix for the TVAE model on small datasets and it's performance with NaN values has been improved. There is a fix for when using UniqueCombinationConstraint with the transform strategy.
